A 91-year-old man is in hospital with serious injuries and police are looking for witnesses after a vehicle collided with an electric mobility scooter in West Vancouver Wednesday.
First responders rushed to the intersection of 21st Street and Bellevue
Avenue just after 3 p.m. when an 87-yearold West Vancouver woman's vehicle hit the man at the crosswalk.
"He has a fractured ankle, a fractured leg, a fractured pelvis, some fractured ribs and quite extensive lacerations," said Const. Jeff Palmer, West Vancouver police spokesman. "As of last night, he was in serious but stable condition and they were going to operate on the fractured pelvis today."
Exactly what happened isn't yet clear, though the driver remained at the scene and is being co-operative, Palmer said.
"What we know was there was a collision between the vehicle at the scooter at the crosswalk and we are asking. .. if there's anyone who witnessed it and hasn't yet spoken to officers, give us a call," Palmer said. "No determination has been made yet in regard to charges."
West Vancouver police have called in the integrated collision analysis and reconstruction service to assist.
